Producer Bryan Burk Talks STAR WARS: EPISODE VII And STAR TREK 3
Bad Robot's Bryan Burk talks about producing J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney, balancing that and a third Star Trek, and more. He also assures that both sci-fi films will be "completely different".
Speaking with Digital Spy at a screening of some Star Trek Into Darkness footage, producer Bryan Burk of Bad Robot talks about both a potential third installment and Star Wars: Episode VII, the latter of which will be directed by frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams. He confirms that talks about a third Trek have occurred, but there hasn't been any discussion about a release date when asked if a 2016 50th anniversary date was possible. "We're definitely talking about the next one, but we haven't talked about a release date. We don't want to wait four years, the same amount of time between the last one and this one, but it's going to be a big year to celebrate, hopefully."
He also had this to say about balancing both Star Trek and Star Wars, confirming that both projects are completely different. "Yeah. Obviously they're completely different universes, they're completely different films. The only thing in common is the word 'Star', which is why we're going to do the Ringo Starr movie as well. We'll corner the market!" This should be good news for those who were worried about both franchises under the same creative team. Finally, Burk comments on any potential casting, with recent comments from George Lucas basically confirming that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford will all return. "We're very new to the process. We've only been on the movie a few weeks. The script we're still working on with the writers and Kathleen Kennedy, who's a genius. It's hard for me to comment on anything. We're still figuring things out."
